Santa Cruz VJ, 2012 model in near mint condition with angelhair signs of use only.  This is possibly the lightest weight guitar on the market, Extremely good sounding super resonant slope shoulder jumbo. The Model that evolved from the prewar Gibson J-35 in a model that nowadays would be considered as a class of its own. Developed by Santa Cruz's Richard Hoover. These days Richard is sided by a extremely strong team of younger craftsman, and they seem to be on new flow looking at all the fine guitars that found their way to our shop and sort of sell instantly. This guitar comes with a impressive and very strong bass, a matching powerful midrange, and clear highs that are able to match the bass and mids.

Like i said, a unique super-lightweight guitar, balanced and powerful, impressive projection. This guitar is very special, once you played a VJ, you always remember it as one of the better guitar playing experiences in your life. Also a unique guitar in the sense that it has a beautiful dry and warm tone character.

Features: Honduras mahogany back and sides, Sitka spruce top that sounds like it's very matured already and perfect for the singer-songwriter, a robust Strummer that breaks through every mix but with a fine fingerstyle guitar also although it's not made like it. Other features are a Honduras mahogany neck, ivoroid-bound body with black / white modest ornate inlay, ebony bridge and fingerboard with microdot inlays, ebony headstock with vintage style Santa Cruz Guitar Company logo. A very noble instrument with a particular dry and warm sound, exceptionally well-suited for studio recordings because of the powerful mid, but ideally suited for smaller venues where it comes to acoustic performances.
